Holly Henry is the morning Online Producer for WTKR and WGNT.

Growing up in Virginia Beach, Holly has a passion for what's going on in Hampton Roads. She graduated from Radford University, Magna Cum Laude, with a major in Media Studies, a minor in English, and a concentration in Journalism. Holly interned at WTKR in Norfolk the summer before graduating from Radford.

Holly has always been interested in writing, and media. After graduation, she moved from Radford, Va. back to Virginia Beach, where she became a promotions assistant, and overnight announcer at FM99/106.9 The Fox, WNOR/WAFX in Chesapeake, Va. She also helped produce for the radio station's website there. In October of 2009, Holly accepted an offer from WTKR to be the nightside Online Producer. Since then, Holly has made the transition to morning Online Producer.

Aside from journalism, another love of hers is the beach. Holly enjoys running at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, practicing yoga, and stand-up paddleboarding. Holly's life wouldn't be complete without spending time with family, friends, and of course with her pets, Browning and Me-mow (Australian Shepherd and house cat). Holly is proud to be a VB local - and lover of the ocean.
